In case you haven’t seen or heard about this online yet, here’s the what: On the BBC’s Top Gear, some comedic dialogue was going on about the development of a new sports car made in Mexico. They proceed to bash and poke fun about how flatulent and lazy Mexicans are, and how we sleep all day, etc. Typical outdated frat boy/morning shock-jock humor. By the way, the “guys with the best jobs in telly” call this car The Tortilla.
I originally saw this on Laura Martinez’s Mi blog es tu blog but today I wasn’t able to view the video again today. Seems the BBC has blocked it due to copyright issues. Maybe it’s on PutoVision now?
Anyway, it is offensive stuff.
Yes, I have a sense of humor but I’ve grown tired of hearing this type of mierda.
A lot of folks are offended. It’s said the Mexican consulate was demanding an apology. But as my cousin Carmen likes to say, “el gobierno vale puro sorbete.”
A friend of mine suggested a group of us head across the ocean to the Brits’ turf, armed with machetes, tequila and cumbia mixes. Once there, we will proceed to take their women. Only then will Brit women will finally see how much fun real men can be.
How much fun can these Brit guys possibly be? Besides Mick Jagger (who’s 67), how many of these guys even dance? Some shots, some margaritas (we’ll even bring the limes), some cumbias, some rock en Español and one big invasion, pachanga style. Courtesy of our neo-armada.
The Brit guys will all just stand around listening to each other with stiff upper lips and their arms crossed.
